State Bar Complaints Front and Center on New Bar Website

May 22, 2017 | Blog, California State Bar Defense

The State Bar of California launched a great new website this weekend.  My concern?  Front and center is the link to file a complaint against an attorney.

It is no secret that the State Bar takes its role to regulate attorneys very seriously, and its mission to protect the public is paramount.  Still, my clients routinely face baseless and costly State Bar complaints.  A bigger focus on filing complaints disturbs me.
